WWC267 – Karen\’s Challenge: Anything Goes With a Masculine Twist

Hello and welcome.  This week we are making \”masculine\” cards at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge and I am so pleased to be this week\’s hostess.  I needed a card for a friend having cancer surgery and I came up with this design.
 Baby Giraffe by Impression Obsession is one of my all time favorite stamps and I thought the sincere look on the giraffe\’s face could convey my well wishes.

I started by making an A2 top folding card using cold press watercolor paper.  I then heat embossed the giraffe in brown.  I mixed my own water color browns by combining purple with yellow and orange and then went to work painting.  I think the monochromatic colors work well for a man (or woman).   I am pleased with the clean CAS look.

I used a Visible Image sentiment stamp inside \”Life can be tough but darling so are you.\”

UPDATE:  I was so pleased to see that my card was chosen as the \”winner\” for the Addicted to CAS challenge.

Challenges:
As You Like It Challenge: Animals or People  I love to use animals in cards and giraffes are a favorite.  One of my favorite things to do is hand feed giraffes and I have done this at zoos all over the US.  

Always Fun Challenge – CAS  I am excited about this CAS theme!

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge – E is for…  Embossing.  I used brown embossing powder for my watercolor giraffe.

I am so pleased you stopped by!
